Chalet YCMT

About this project

General overview

Resembling a traditional ski chalet with its low-pitched roof, deep overhangs and ski-in, ski-out location, Chalet YCMT offers its owners with a warm and cozy retreat after long days spent adventuring on the mountain.

What makes it special

The stone and timber home offers striking views of Pioneer and Cedar Mountains and is simple yet visually stunning while resembling the mountain chalets that dot Switzerland’s high alpine valleys where the homeowners often ski. It was selected as Mountain Living Magazine’s 2019 Home of the Year.

Type of building

Traditional yet rustic ski chalet.

Other specific details

The exterior is fir and hemlock anchored by native Montana moss rock. Inside, the floors are live sawn oak planks and most of the cabinets are reclaimed antique-surfaced oak; the ceiling vaults are reclaimed hemlock. A single, strikingly beautiful staircase made of reclaimed oak with hand-cut scrollwork balusters services all three levels of the residence.
